We wrote a Chrome extension that fulfills the role of the great Memrise2Anki addon (which doesn’t seem to function anymore and has no plans to be restored). The extension works with the current version of Memrise and enables downloading complete course data from the site in an Anki-compatible format
It also handles downloading audio and video files from courses and allows batch downloading of multiple courses at once.
Please leave your comments regarding the extension here or on the GitHub page. Any feedback is welcome.
I’ve updated the part of the script that handles downloading of extra data, taking into account the information you brought up. Now it works for both additional fields in the course you provided. Check out the new version of the extension!
The extra_info settings should still be turned on for those to be included in the spreadsheet. collapse_columns and learnable_ids can be kept at their default values, unless, of course, you changed them for some other reasons.
Thank you for the kind words. This will be my favorite comment on the whole internet now.
As an ex Memrise user myself, I understand the feeling.
The Memrise team made it clear that they prioritize the first impression in marketing over the interests of the longtime user base. They will not stop making one infuriating change after the other, even if it completely disrupts the learning experience. The users are practically held hostages by the platform, because of the amount of time and effort they invested into their study collections, especially someone who create their own courses.
I hope that more people will get to know about the tools to leave Memrise and get away from that sinking ship. Staying there, I believe, only does more harm to learning than good in the long run.
Don’t hesitate to do so. I will try and help in any way I can.
Hm… this won’t be a simple one.
I will have to rewrite the whole system of how the fields are handled inside the extension in order to properly process all the different types of entries that are mixed together in these courses. It will take a while.
For now, I uploaded a quick fix that adds the additional field you requested. Maybe it will be sufficient for your purposes:
The downside is that the extra fields may appear in different order for different items.
If you are asking whether the data downloaded with the extension can be brought into this Memrise card template, then the answer is yes. You just open the downloaded deck file with Anki, which creates the Memrise Template (Lτ) note type, and then choose this note type when importing the downloaded Memrise courses.
Also using the heatmap addon. Not at all surprising, but it’s worth highlighting to people coming from Memrise because it displays the number of reviews ahead of time – a feature Memrise was always so desperately lacking.
I’ve finally made the long-due rework of the extension to handle arbitrary content of the extra fields. It seems to work with your courses well now, so you might want to update your data using the current version of the script.
(the readme is not up to date yet, but the default settings should do fine)
